# 100 is up
and it's a NEW release!!
Archive Song Picks 89-99
Here's Lou's picks #98 & #99. It's another Double helping of Doo Wop from two of the earliest Doo Wop groups Both were formed in the mid 50's. One from San Bernardino California and the other from Harlem in New York. These groups helped to spread Doo Wop across America from sea to shining sea.
Their classic 50s vocal harmonies & sound led straight to the coming soul era of music. Lou covered one of these songs on his Roulette Records album.
Lou's song pick #100 is coming up in a couple of weeks. Be sure to stay tuned to ISHBAH to find out what this milestone pick of Lou's is.

Here's Lou's pick on this Play Back Sunday. It's from five Pittsburgh teenagers who started harmonizing in Clairton High School in 1958. They were produced by Lennie Martin, the producer of The Skyliners.
Although they achieved regional success with a couple of their songs on Robbee Records we feel that this song of theirs should have gone national and become a much bigger hit for them.
Give it a second listen here on ISHBAH.
